Vegetable garden friends

Vegetable gardens are fun. A quick hello to all of you who I have met and am meeting. So many of us are growing our own food around the country in our small backyards, it’s crazy. For me it is heartwarming to meet folks like you and hear your stories.

Quick Gardens is going to Video

I have created a Youtube channel for this blog so everyone can follow the garden project in a more interactive way. I am finding it is much easier to show the process in video than try to explain it in writing. Click here for the Quick GardensYoutube channel to keep updated on the latest helpful tips, the good and bad, my cat and the Give A Garden Project. I created this blog for all those who would like to grow there own food no matter where they are. Here is the first video that started it all. Click here to view more videos.

Here are some pictures showing the damage a frost can have. Planting cold weather crops paid off. Only half the garden was damaged. The broccoli, carrots, onions, garlic, peas seemed to really enjoy the cold.
